Come to our 'Meet the Funders' event on 24 April - booking form can be downloaded below. This is your chance to meet the grant givers face to face. You will hear from the BIG Lottery and an inspirational local organisation that was voted in the Top 100 Sunday Times best not for profit Employer in 2012.
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and speak to the Funders directly (including the Council) and to sign up for a half hour workshop on the different funding streams (BIG Lottery, Arts, Sports, Heritage Lottery, Fundraising and Legacies). As well as national funders you will also get the opportunity to speak to local funders and support services.
Funds for the arts are available from various sources, but demand is very high. Winchester City Council hosts regular information events and seminars for fund-raisers, has a policy for funding arts activity through capital (buildings and equipment) and revenue (project and running costs). This page links you to more information about that as well as to other organisations which may be able to help.
Enquiries can also be directed towards our Arts Advisor, Stephen Boyce, at email@example.com
